Geotechnical services form the roots of our company. We have extensive experience in almost every type of geotechnical consulting.

GEC works with developers, architects, civil design engineers, design-build contractors, school boards and municipalities to determine the geotechnical aspects or needs of a proposed project. We also have the expertise and experience to help determine the root causes of a problem.

Our engineers typically follow a project from inception to final construction. They ensure that quality data-gathering techniques are implemented so sufficient sampling is achieved. Once proper sampling and testing is done, we use the field and laboratory data, geotechnical engineering theory, software, and solid engineering judgement (along with a good dose of common sense) to meet the needs of the project.
